Tasting Notes: This wine displays a strong, bright cherry-red hue. On the nose, it discloses intense aromas of expressive ripe red fruit and balsamic notes with smooth undertones of (French) oak. The wine shows personality and very expressive structure on the palate, with velvety tannins, followed by a long-lingering finish. The balsamic aromas, as well as the ripe red fruit, come through particularly well.
About the Winery: El Grillo y la Luna is a family project that was born in Barbastro in 2007, with the aim of producing wines with soul, wines that are unique. They have 5 different vineyard areas, which have several types of soils: calcareous soils, alluvial soils with gravel or loam soils, located between 300 and 400 metres of altitude. They work with a total of 48 hectares of their own vineyards. Their motto is that wine is created in the vine. Therefore, wines only hit the market when they are at their best, with maximum respect for the singularity of the vintage. They produce two lines of wine: 12 Lunas, a line of fresh, fruit-laden wines, and El Grillo, a line of more complex wines, with a greater reflection of the terroir.
